not working and no icon in system tray

I have installed the drivers and software from the web and mini disc. The software and drivers are viewable on the hard drive and I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times. When I click on the DisplayLink UI application nothing happens. When I Click on the Display link manager application a black screen pops up quickly and closes immediately. The installation guide says once installed the manager should be in my system tray, but this has not happened. I have also verified the HDMI cable is fine as it works with a dvd player with no issue. Not sure what to try from here??
